High school can hold many moments that you don’t find anywhere else, especially when it comes to the high school spirit weeks and dress-up days. For Clay City senior Izzy Burton, this has always been one of her favorite parts of her high school years.

Burton describes a special memory of her school spirit experience, taking place even before she was in high school.

“A very big memory for me is going into the high school and winning the spirit award for Eel Day my seventh grade year. I still have the medal to this day.”

The school spirit aspect of high school has been Izzy’s favorite part of high school, along with the people that made it special.

“My favorite part of high school is the school spirit, spirit weeks, and the people around me that I see everyday that I go.”

Izzy is involved in FCCLA at Clay City. Outside of school, she enjoys riding horses and spending time with her friends. She also works part-time at a local farm.

Burton explains that her proudest accomplishment has been the progress she has made academically.

“I would say the achievement that I am extremely proud of is finally picking myself up and getting better grades for high school.”

Izzy’s role model in her life is her mother.

“I really look up to my mom. She inspires me to do great things in life and boosts my self-esteem. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

In the future, Burton plans to attend college and major in criminal justice.

“I have always been interested in that type of workforce.”

For Izzy, one of the most important tasks on her bucket list is to go on a safari and see all of the wild animals that she has wanted to see.
